Meet your tutor:
Hi! I’m Alys, a pattern maker who's worked for brands like Alexander McQueen, steventai and Teija.But I don’t think designing clothes should be something only the experts and fashion houses can do – which is why I started Unpicked Studio.
I teach pattern making in a way that makes it simple and enjoyable because I believe everybody deserves to be able to design their own clothes.
